Skizzomat, the ephemeral collage
This is how you might react on seeing this post: “Oh, not another collage! Goodness, they’re obsessed at the LanciaTrendVisions editorial office…” But how could we snub the visionary project by studio Skizzomat, an intuitive glue-less collage, whose life span only lasts the time it takes to catch it on camera?Since 2005, Skizzomat has been a design, illustration and motion graphics studio in Berlin directed by Marie Luise Emmermann, class of 1974.Her most recent work juxtaposes hand and digital illustration, analogue and digital photography, cut-outs, paper, objects, type fonts and who knows what else. Everything is assembled intuitively, photographed in the time it takes for the camera to click and destroyed immediately thereafter.Marie considers this project to be a sort of diary, a personal playground in which to experiment with all types of ideas and inspirations, in a free flow of ideas and concepts.An idea that is apparently far from the methodical routine of normal work, because it is steeped in the charm of the ephemeral, albeit very close to the process of inspiration at the core of an articulated creative work.
